We all reach a turning point… but it’s up to us whether or not we look back or not.
Over the past few years I’ve lived in the past more than I’d like to admit. Romanticizing old lovers, behaviors, cities, and lifestyle choices, I remembered all of the good, forgot the bad, and failed to consider one important thing: I have a brand new future ahead of me.
We can take pieces from the past, but it’s important to move toward the future.
I have thought a lot lately about the things I wished to forget, acknowledging that my struggles brought strength. Despite writing about this subject nearly a year ago, I’ve made a whole new set of mistakes (which I now consider learning opportunities) by covering up my issues with a band-aid instead of speaking out about them.
We can learn from our mistakes, but we don’t have to dwell on them.
Today I am confident my purpose in life is to create, inspire, and to speak out about the topics others may avoid. I have faith I will be lead to opportunities that both set me free and help to give others courage.
Once you are on your own path, remember to have faith, stop doubting yourself, and have confidence in your creations. The light will show you the way. ✨
